Warrior Artist: Risk and Revelation in Studio Art

The artist is trained as a scholar to cultivate confidence and dignity. Students engage in the skills of speaking about art, and its concerns, with regard to inner and outer influences. Research and articulation of influences provide students a greater clarity of how their art form relates from themselves to the world. Warrior exams prompt students to talk about their art on the spot and uncover wisdom. Fundamental questions are explored to provide a larger view of the effect art creates for the viewer. Ongoing art studio practice informs the dialogue and encourages progressive art consciousness. In this class, students join their advanced studio art practice with the disciplines of speaking and writing about art.
